Tender Loving Care

Rain pelted against the windows like bullets and the wind was howling. Dark clouds loomed across the sky and it seemed they would be here to stay for the rest of the day.


When Jessica opened the door, she was greeted with a sheepish smile by the person standing outside the apartment. Taeyeon was completely soaked from head to toe and she was holding her backpack in her hand. Water was dripping from her backpack. It was evident she tried to use her backpack to shield her head but that move was rendered useless in the strong wind.


Jessica was visibly upset, especially seeing Taeyeon shiver in her wet clothes. “Taengoo! How many times have I reminded you to bring an umbrella out?!”


“Oops.” Taeyeon looked down, unable to meet her lover’s scary glare. “I forgot.”


“You always give me the same excuse each time!” Jessica complained as she stormed away from the door.


“Sorry,” Taeyeon called out. She took off her shoes and wiped her feet on the mat at the door before stepping into the apartment.


Sitting by the small stool near the door, Taeyeon unzipped her backpack and pulled out some tissues to dry the exterior of her backpack before she headed in, lest the water from her bag dripped across the living room. She knew that Jessica would be livid if that happened.


As Taeyeon was bending down to dry her bag, she felt a towel being wrapped around her body. Taeyeon got up and met Jessica eye to eye. The latter used the ends of the towel to dry Taeyeon’s arms.


“I remember packing an umbrella into your bag, where is it?” Jessica questioned.


“I took it out of my bag just before I left the office. Yuri came over to talk to me and I must have accidentally left it on my desk after we finished talking,” Taeyeon replied guiltily.


Jessica lifted the towel and used it to dry the ends of Taeyeon’s hair. “You should have gone back to get it when you get to the lobby, knowing that it is raining so heavily.”


“Aish, it’s only a short distance from the train station to our house. I thought I could make a run for it. Afterall, I need to shower when I get home.”


“That’s a very lame excuse, Kim Taeyeon. When you get sick, I get worried and I’ve to spend time looking after you.”


“Ah, tender loving care. How sweet,” Taeyeon said jokingly.


“Ya Taeyeon!” Jessica gave Taeyeon a shove and pushed her towards the bathroom.


Although Jessica was complaining about Taeyeon’s carelessness, Taeyeon knew that Jessica still cared for her else she wouldn’t have brought a towel and made the effort to dry her.


Once the couple got into the bathroom, Jessica unbuttoned Taeyeon’s blouse hastily. Her intention was to get the poor girl out of her wet clothes quickly so that she wouldn’t catch a cold.


“Hey, can’t wait to see me naked?” Taeyeon said cheekily, stealing a quick peck on Jessica’s cheek.


Jessica’s face burst into a shade of red.


“Do it yourself then.” Jessica disappeared out of the bathroom in a flash amid hearty laughter from Taeyeon.


After Taeyeon was done showering, she saw a mug of hot chocolate on the dressing table in the bedroom. A wide smile crept up her face as she took a sip of the hot chocolate. It warmed her heart and body.


Just then, Jessica entered the bedroom. Taeyeon saw a frown on Jessica’s face in the mirror.


“Come here,” Jessica commanded, pointing at the edge of the bed where she was standing.


Taeyeon did as she was told, wondering what she did. Perhaps the hot chocolate wasn’t meant for her and she drank it.


Jessica pressed Taeyeon’s shoulders and forced the latter to sit on the edge of the bed. Then she grabbed a small towel from the cupboard and placed it on Taeyeon’s head. Working from the crown of Taeyeon’s head, Jessica began to dry Taeyeon’s still-wet hair.


“How do I live without you, I want to know,” Taeyeon sang a line from LeAnn Rimes’ How Do I Live.


“I want to know too. Silly girl, how can you drink the hot chocolate without drying your hair properly.”


Taeyeon chuckled. “The hot chocolate warmed my heart and made me forget about the cold.”


“Cheesy.” Jessica smacked Taeyeon’s shoulder lightly.


Taeyeon grabbed Jessica’s wrists and pulled the latter towards her. Their noses touched and it sent an electrifying jolt through their bodies.


“Thank you, dear.” Taeyeon planted a kiss on Jessica’s forehead.


“If you’re going to forget your umbrella again, I’m not going to be bothered with you anymore,” Jessica grumbled, her heart was beating very quickly at their close proximity.


Jessica loved to drown herself in the sincere pair of eyes that were staring at her and it was that same pair of eyes that always made her anger disappeared in a smoke. She tried to pull away, hoping to retain some of her frustrations at the older girl but failed. Taeyeon had an iron grip on her wrists and even curled a leg around her waist.


“Sorry dear. I’ll make an effort to remember the next time.”


A kiss on the nose.


“You had better remember, else …”


A kiss on the lips.


“I love you,” Taeyeon mouthed into the kiss.


“You’re careless and forgetful but I love you too,” came the reply as Jessica melted into the kiss.


= The End=

A/N: I’ve gotten over the shock about Jessica’s departure and wish her all the best in the new path she’s embarking. I know many people are still depressed/upset over Jessica’s departure.Β We have our own ways of dealing with the news and I hope all of you would support the 9 of them in whatever they do. That’s what we can do as a fan of Girls’ Generation.

For now, I will try to finish Heartbeat since it had already started and I feel bad leaving it hanging halfway.Β To be honest, I’m not sure if I’m going to continue writing more stories or not. Jessica is one of my bias and a main character in my stories. Now that she isn’t part of Girls’ Generation, it feels a little awkward for me to continue writing. Also, I sometimes wonder if anyone is interested in reading my stories and the reason why I started writing in the first place.

I’m thankful for those who left a comment on my thread. I sincerely appreciate your feedback and encouragement. Sorry if everything sounds a little confusing to read. I guess my thoughts about writing aren’t settled yet. In any case, I hope this little one shot brightened up your day.

  1. This made my day, really! Aaaah, fluffy Taengsic always cheers me up.
    I’m glad you wrote this oneshot πŸ™‚ Thank you. It took me a while, but I just realized that moping around all day was not going to change anything (or bring Jessica back, for that matter). So I figured out that the best way to deal with all of this is to support both Girls’ Generation and our Ice Princess. So yeah haha~ I’m okay now I think (though watching the Divine PV nearly killed me).
    Anyways, I’m glad to hear that you’re trying to finish Heartbeat! But take all the time you need~ Okay so I’ll stop talking now and I hope my English doesn’t suck because I only speak French hehe

    • Your English is good! You ought to talk more and you’ll get used to it. French is a difficult language to learn. *sweats*

      Glad the short fluffy story made your day. We’ve all got to move on. I’ll try to update Heartbeat soon but I’m quite busy with work due to year end activities. Do be patient. πŸ™‚

  2. You definitely made my day, thanks for the story.
    Is true that Jessica’s departure hurts, I will continue to support them as a group or solo. Would be great if you end up writing Hearbeat, but it is also understandable if you do not because your reasons are more than obvious.
    And believe me when I tell you it’s a real pleasure to read your stories are really extraordinary I love the way you write. Thanks and if you decide keep writing I will continue reading your stories TaengSic or not.
    THANKS πŸ™‚

  3. thank you so much for writing another one shot of taengsic.. cheesy as ever…. ahh no worries.. i’m always on lookout for taengsic fics.. so if u really plan to write more.. i’ll be one of ur no1 fan!! haha.. even if sica is out now out of gg.. but soshi as ot9 will be forever in our hearts.. even though it might be akward for writers to write them…

    • hello, nice to see you here. Thanks for being my no. 1! *high fives*

      All 9 girls are always in our hearts, no matter what they do. It is awkward to write and I do know of a few authors who have given up writing completely. It isn’t easy to continue especially when one of your bias isn’t part of the group anymore.

      • ahh that’s true… taengsic will always be my no1 otp… whatever it is i still beliebe in 0t9 even if ppl call me crazy πŸ˜›

  4. I feel you…. jessi is my bias but lets see at different angle…since altough my otp is taengsic but these last 3 years or more this taengsic only really alive in fiction….n yours are one of my fave..

    I always enjoy reading yours n thank you for sharing it with us….

    • Thank you for dropping a note and for enjoying my stories. I’m glad to bring joy to you via my stories. TaengSic is always alive in real life, just that sometimes they do not show it openly. There’re moments they shared and we’ve seen them for ourselves during Mr Mr promotions.

  5. Nice and short fluff for the night! It’s nice to see you still writing taengsic. Although Jessica is no longer part of snsd now, I would like to think the years they spent together are not so easily forgotten by the fact that she’s no longer a member of the group. I hope you can continue writing more great taengsic stories even though Jessica has left. These are fictions after all and I would like to think that you wouldn’t stop because of a fact that happened to the group. Stay strong and once again, thanks for this short fluffy update πŸ™‚ looking forward to your continuation of heartbeat ^^

    • Yes, it is fiction. Nothing written by most Soshi authors are real anyway, that’s why it is called fanfiction.

      It takes some effort to get over it since writing requires imagination. At times, it feels awkward thinking of a TaengSic scene in my head yet feel the ache in my heart as I pen down the scene in words. I hope you know what I mean.

  6. We understand all writer’s dilemma with sica’s situation. But such fluffy story always is a good escape from the harsh reality, so thank u for that!

    • Great minds think alike! I’ve always been a sucker for fluff. I guess you must have known by now judging from all the stories I’ve written. Everyone needs a little fluff at times. πŸ™‚

  7. ahh thank you very much for writing this one, it does really brighten up my day.
    i also had a really tough time when the situation happened T__T
    but no matter what, i will always support our nine girls and you:)

  8. Howdy!!

    Feeling icky tonight, so this bit of fluff helped me out.Very sweet, indeed. Jessica’s so grumbly, but c’mon–it’s Kim Taeyeon adorably covered in rain and grinning. There was no way she couldn’t rush to bundle her up. :333

    Thanks for this~

  9. I sincerely apologize for not being there for you during your rough time. If not we could team up & stand together!!! Sica also my bias in snsd, but yet the believes we have she will always right here with us. But rest assured I am here now! πŸ˜‰ Hahahaha. ..so dramatic. Wiell be always be your loyal fan! Loves all of your story about taengsic! They are my favourite couple!

    • You don’t have to apologise. It’s no one’s fault and I’m sure none of us wants this to happen. Thanks for enjoying my stories. That is certainly a mood lifter and an encouragement for me.
